A Happy Christmas to you all...

What an extraordinary year 2020 has been, I really don’t know where to begin…

I want to tell you just how much we have missed you and being together, but it’s been wonderful seeing the thousands of miles you all racked up by taking on our Virtual Challenges… who knew the Virtual world could bring us such a variety of choices to your own home. The fun we had walking from London to Iceland, having our own SunWalk Festival, or even the Grand Safari Balloon Race across the Serengeti! 

I want to tell you that whilst we are always shouting about the benefits of walking, never before has it been so important to recognise how the simple act of going for a walk can profoundly help you to not only keep fit, but also balanced and calm, and above all, support your general well-being in these challenging times… it really is the best for the body and soul! 

I want to tell you about the Emergency Grants we have made and will continue to make in 2021. It has been a catastrophic year for cancer patients with treatments being cancelled and delayed. Many living with cancer have had to self-isolate due to COVID-19, only adding to their fears and loneliness. There has been more than a 70% reduction of the usual referrals coming forward and this means cancers are being diagnosed later and with more advanced conditions. Our grants are helping to fund amongst other things, essential online support and counselling sessions. Demand is continually growing and help is needed now more than ever before, so all donations no matter how small are so appreciated. 

I want to tell you about The Christmas Cracker Challenge, our 12 walking days of Christmas that starts tomorrow and will not only see you Walking into the New Year, but we are also setting you daily Missions… you will need to sign up to find out what they are… but I can guarantee they are all goodies!   

I want to tell you about our Monthly Challenge… each month we will introduce another goal for you to conquer… why not take a look at the “Get Going January” and see if it tempts you!

But most of all... I want to tell you just how utterly fantastic all our supporters have been. Your loyalty and support has kept us all going... thank you all! 

Everyone has had a difficult time, so let’s come together in true Walk the Walk style, and focus on all the positive things that have come from this challenging year… and all that we have to look forward to!

Wishing you a very happy Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year! 

Love Walking, Love Life!
